The Nifty 250: news of the day in so many words

LIVERPOOL SLATER Street label, 3 Beat Blue are celebrating after their latest signing rose to No 6 in the charts and to the top of the dance charts for a second week, knocking Black Eyed Peas' ‘Rock Your Body’ off the No 1 spot.

It comes from INNA, the 23-year-old Romanian musical phenomenon who has already stormed to No1 in ten countries with her smash hit single, Hot.

3 Beat Blue released Hot into the UK on 14th March.

HOW MANY Mersey Tunnel workers does it take to change 6,000 light bulbs? No idea, but major new work will see it happen, plus the resurfacing of Kingsway tunnel roadway, and the recladding of inside the Queensway tunnel from April in a £5m scheme. It will mean a series of weekend and night closures.

US RETAIL GIANT Best Buy has announced that the company will be opening its very first stores in the UK this summer, with one at Aintree retail park in June.

The store stocks a wide range of electronic products relating to entertainment, computing and gaming technology and owns more than 1,150 electronic retail outlets across US, China, Mexico and Turkey.

TWO “impeccable” young men who punched and kicked another man were spared jail after admitting affray.

Philip Tattersall, 22, and Christopher Cunningham, 21, were out in Southport on June 7 last year when they were approached by Richard Power near a Lord Street taxi rank.

Liverpool Crown Court heard Cunningham punched Mr Power several times, while Tattersall threw blows before kicking him on the ground.

But Judge John Roberts said: “You are young men of not just good but impeccable character.”

Both received suspended sentences.

Icon watch: Alex Hannah, director of bar operations at The Noble House, said: “The Grand National is one of the most iconic events on the calendar.” PR handout
